I Dream of Escaping… Poem

A painting was done by me that really suits this poem and I dream to run wild and free someday exactly like this.

Time and again –

I’ve been wanting to walk,

bare feet on the lush grass.

Enjoy the chirping of the birds while watching the sunrise.

Even just thinking about it makes me feel at ease.

I feel as though I had escaped the grip of this planet.

a running clock that is constantly ticking,

Everyone follows the breed monotonously during the morning rush hour.

Instead, I would select the serene option,

Inhaling the fresh air, having nowhere to rush—a morning I hope to have one day.

I would smile at the sight of a clean sky, bright daybreak, chirping birds, dancing butterflies, and a cool breeze.

Away from this shabby, concrete world where everyone is in a rat race,

Leaving their lives behind, they become the puppets of machines.

In between the hilly regions, far away from the bustle of city life, where skyscrapers are a sin and trees are an investment, I would rather spend this dreamy morning away from the chaos.

Perhaps someday I’ll be able to live out this dream.

I dream of escaping the soul-depleting concrete world and living a life full of freedom and vitality.
